49ers fantasy football pick-ups Roger Craig Jersey
, drops for Week 6 We’ve officially entered a dark void for fantasy football with the 49ers. Most of the value players are snapped up. The players that did have value are now useless due to the offense we have. If you have anyone not named George Kittle or Matt Breida, you have a mess on your hands. Let’s help you out here. But just know we’re not bringing only 49ers players this time around. As always, percentage owned numbers are based on Yahoo! leagues.Pick-upsPackers D/STWeek 5 stats: 31 PA, 3 sacksThe 49ers offense isn’t getting any better and if you’re desperate for a streaming defensive option, there are worse teams than the Packers. The Lions managed to hang 31 points on them last week, which isn’t the most comforting of things. That said, there’s really no way you don’t look into this as an option. The 49ers stink on offense and it opens up a chance for pick sixes and sacks thanks to C.J. Beathard’s love of holding onto the ball. The 49ers are on a skid, they are in Lambeau, and that’s really all we need to have confidence in picking this defense up. We feel so dirty.Pick up or don’t pick up: Pick them up. Must-Start Status AlertGeorge Kittle% Owned: 93Week 5 stats: 5 receptions, 83 yardsIf you’re in a PPR league you are loving these numbers. Even when he has a bad day, Kittle is getting you some yardage and at least contributing. If you’re in a standard league, you’re probably wondering what the deal is. Our advice: stick by him. Who else is Beathard going to throw to? Who else can catch it? It’s not like Kittle is an elite pass catcher with his drops, but he’s a helluva lot better than the other options on the field.Pick up or don’t pick up: You know what to do…Fool’s goldAll of the 49ers wide receivers% Owned: Seriously?The time has come to begin evaluating the 49ers pass catchers. If you find yourself on waivers and looking at other, more productive wide receivers (and depending on how deep your league is they may be all gone at this point), the 49ers wide receivers should be the first to go. They aren’t reliable and you can’t count on them for touchdowns when Matt Breida and George Kittle are getting the lion’s share of redzone targets/runs. If one emerges from this slop, we’ll be first to say foot in our mouth, but they’ve ridden your bench long enough. Even if someone breaks out there’s no telling they can continue to do it where it’s relevant to keep them on your bench. Drop or don’t drop: Don’t do it outright, but if you have decisions to make, they can be the first to go. Robbie Gould% Owned: 62Week 5 Stats: One field goal missedGould, WTH?! The 49ers kicker had a very bad day, a very un-Gould-like day. Gould missed his lone field goal attempt. The extra point attempt at the end of the 49ers first drive (you know, the good one) doesn’t go down as an attempt since he never actually tried kicking it. He just stopped for some reason. It might have been the Cardinals player who was flying in. It has not been a good season for kickers in general. They are missing everything. It’s like some sort of bug going around. In any case, Gould has been money outside of this blunder. He gets another week before decisions have to be made. In fact, it may be a good move to pick him up given his availability. The 49ers might be kicking a lot on Monday. Drop or don’t drop: Don’t drop. I’ll come out and say it: this is not the Super Bowl matchup I want. It’s the absolute last matchup I wanted. Saints vs. Chiefs? Saints vs. Patriots? Rams vs. Chiefs?And we’re stuck with this. On one side is a division rival Ronnie Lott Jersey
, and on the other, a team that plays in a dysfunctional division enabling them in the playoffs every year. Ugh. There’s no changing it though. It’s the New England Patriots vs. the Los Angeles Rams. So now the question: who the heck do we root for? There’s arguments for both being fans of the San Francisco 49ers. Nothing would thrill me more than to see the Rams’ all-in for 2018 go to absolute [site-decorum] on the biggest stage of them all. Getting dominated by the Saints was my ultimate hope, but that never happened thanks to the Saints finding a way to screw it up and the NFL refs missing a crucial pass interference call. Much like when we threw up a collaborative cheer when this happened to the Seahawks against the Patriots, I can only hope some sort of chaos ensues. On the same token, 49ers fans have dealt with the eternal debate of Tom Brady being better than Joe Montana. The fact he keeps going back to the Super Bowl certainly says something, whether he’s won them all or not. I am in the minority when I say this, but I do think Tom Brady will go down as the greatest quarterback of all time—and I’m fine with that. Records are made to be broken. On the flipside (yep, let’s make this complicated) I also think that Brady and Montana played in different eras and if Brady played in Montana’s era, he may have been long retired by this point due to how much more vicious the league was then. Yes, Montana won all his Super Bowls, but Brady has been to far more than Montana and while it takes a great quarterback to win the Super Bowl, it also takes a great quarterback to make it to one. So I sort of hang on the fence, arguing for and against the whole thing. One more win isn’t going to change the debate on Brady’s legacy. People were already anointing him the GOAT long before this Super Bowl. All that said, while it’s hilarious to see the Rams faceplant in the Super Bowl, it’s equal hilarity if the Patriots find a way to lose the Super Bowl yet again. The post game pressers from these induce laughs every time out of the Patriots’ misery. In the scheme of things, I’d be rooting for the Patriots, but I just want a good game. The last two Super Bowls have spoiled me with fun games and while I get annoyed with the Patriots always finding a way in lately, they at least provide ample entertainment. Of course, if this game goes bad, I can hope for good commercials. For most of you, that’s all you’ll pay attention to, so have fun watching commercials everyone. Who do you want to win?
